Sign up for Hulu with Swagbucks, make money for watching TV! #savingmore

 
I can get paid to watch TV?  Oh, yeah!

I'm a Swagbucks Influencer and I am sharing this post with you to help you save money.  If you're not a Swagbucks member, be sure to join and start earning in 2017.  Swagbucks is a great way to earn extra money on the side for the things you need.

Is it time to cut the cord?  A lot more of my friends and family are moving away from traditional cable/satellite providers and moving more toward services like Hulu to provide them with entertainment.  If you've been thinking about trying Hulu, this is the time to do it. Thanks to an offer through Swagbucks, you get $20 (paid in the form of points called SB) for trying Hulu for a month. That will cost you $7.99, so you're making $12 on the deal! 

Hulu has tons of current and classic programming, movies, brilliant original series, and more.  Want to finally "get" Seinfeld references?  Catch up on Nashville or binge watch a TV show your friend recommends?  Here's how you do it:

1. Click this link
2. Create your Swagbucks account (takes 30 seconds)
3. Click "Continue" and sign up for Hulu
4. Enjoy Hulu! You should have your points within 30 minutes.


Haven't tried Swagbucks yet? They're a site where you earn points (called SB) for doing things like online shopping, watching videos, taking surveys, and discovering deals and services you might like to try (like Hulu!). You then take those points and turn them into free gift cards to places like Amazon, Starbucks, Walmart, Target, or PayPal cash.  I typically cash out for Amazon because I can always find something there to buy!  PayPal is a great option, too, because that means cold, hard cash that you can use to save for a rainy day, buy groceries, or keep gas in your tank.  There are lots of ways to spend your SB and grabbing offers like this are one way to help stretch your budget.

This is a great time to join because when you sign up through the link above and get your 2,000 SB, you'll get a bonus 300 SB at the beginning of February. So that's $20 (2000 SB) for trying Hulu plus your $3 (300 SB) bouns, which gets you 2300 SB, which means you make $15 total just for watching TV! 

This is a great offer, I hope you check it out!

Babies R Us Great Trade-In 2017: January 20-February 20

Babies R Us' Great Trade In is an annual event that encourages parents to trade in their older baby gear and receive a coupon good toward a more modern one.  This is a good time to trade in your older car seat as, over time, they become less safe due to safety enhancements and also because plastic ages.  So recycling that car seat from kid to kid may sometimes not be the best and safest thing to do.

Trade in your old, eligible item and receive a 25% off coupon good toward a new car seat, stroller, travel system, high chair, play yard, bassinet, infant swing, bouncer, walker, entertainer, crib, or toddler/twin bed.  This 25% is increased to 30% if you trade in using your R Us Credit card. The press release states if you do not have anything to trade in, a 15% off coupon good on select brands will be available to print.  However, it's not up at this time; it may show up after the event has fully launched.

Rewards R Us Members get early access, starting on January 17.

Winter themed Swago, earn a bonus up to 300 SB #savingmore

 

Winter themed Swago at Swagbucks this week!

I'm a Swagbucks Influencer and I am sharing this post with you to help you save money.  If you're not a Swagbucks member, be sure to join and start earning in 2017.  Swagbucks is a great way to earn extra money on the side for the things you need.
It's time for you to unwrap your SB bonus this holiday season courtesy of Swagbucks. This month's Winter-themed Swago board offers a possible 300 SB ($3) Bonus! Who can't use extra money?
What is SWAGO you ask? It's a bingo-inspired promotion run by Swagbucks, a website that rewards you with points (called SB) for completing everyday online activities. When you complete a task, watch that square change colors. You can then redeem those SB for free gift cards. If you've never used Swagbucks, participating in SWAGO is a great way to learn how to use the site, and it's a lot of fun!
Here’s what you need to know to get your 300 SB Bonus:
  • Swago will begin on Monday, January 16th at 9:01am PDT/12:01pm EDT, make sure you hit “Join” otherwise you won’t get credit for completing the action items. Each square on your Swago Board will contain an action item to complete. So be sure to join after Swago launches so you get credit for your activities.
  • Once you complete the action item in a particular square the square will change color signifying the action item is complete.
  • You have a limited amount of time to mark off as many squares as possible so use your time wisely.
  • Be mindful of the patterns and their corresponding bonuses located on the right of your Swago Board. The patterns will vary in difficulty and bonus value.
  • Once you’ve achieved a pattern the corresponding “Submit” button will light up. You can have multiple patterns available for submission, however, you can only submit ONE pattern so choose wisely.
  • The game ends Monday, January 23rd at 12pm PDT/3pm EDT. So make sure to hit “Submit” on the pattern you wish to submit. If you don’t hit “Submit” before the game ends you won’t receive your SB bonus.
That's it!  Easy as pie.  I know you'll enjoy Swago as much as I do.  Check back on this post and let me know how you did on your Swago board.  Not a Swagbucks member?  Don't miss out on prize or money earning opportunities.  Join today.

Affordable storage bins for Lazy Susans

Are you looking for a storage solution for your Lazy Susan in your kitchen?  I was too!  In browsing for ideas for myself for Christmas, I happened upon some cool wedges at Amazon.com that would fit in my kitchen's Lazy Susan, which houses my spices on the top shelf.  See a photo of my organization below.


This is my spice rack finally organized with six of the 1/8 size bins.  What my husband and I did was pull out all of the spices and sort them into 6 categories:  spices for chicken, every day spices (like salt/pepper), flaked spices like mint, chives, etc., baking (ginger, nutmeg, etc.), spices for Italian type of dishes, and one with salts and peppers (celery salt/cayenne pepper).

In all, these have stayed nicely organized since I organized them at Christmas under the new system.  I like that I can just pick up the whole bin and have the spices I'd likely want right there when I need them.


Want to get your own?  These wedges are available in a variety of sizes at Amazon.  1/4, 1/6, and 1/8, depending on what you might need.  Prices vary by size.  The 1/8 wedges that I got were $11.99 each.

January 23, 2017: First Day IRS Will Accept Electronic Tax Returns

The New Year has barely begun and it's time to start thinking about filing your 2016 return.  January 23, 2017 is the first day the IRS will accept electronic tax returns.  Great news if you have a simple return and aren't waiting for any forms to come in the mail.

The press release linked above also includes a caution to tax payers who may not be aware that,
"The IRS reminds taxpayers that a new law requires the IRS to hold refunds claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) until Feb. 15."  (emphasis mine)

If you claim these, be aware that you may not see your refund til much closer to the end of February.
